Is Vlogging Really Dead?
Today I woke up late and hopped on my computer. The first thing I did was head over to YouTube. Which is odd, normally I jump on Medium and create my first piece of the day. However, I had some comments to respond to and wanted to get that done a bit early.
Anyway, I watched a video by Think Media. This channel goes over ways to grow on YouTube and things that do and do not work. The video I watched was explaining how vlogging was a dying art but there are still ways to make it work, and a sentence in the video stood out to me above all others.
No one knows you yet. People don’t care that you took your pet to the dog park.
At first, this upset me for all the vloggers out there. These people spend hours recording and editing their work to create their content. Someone was bluntly stating that all that work is for not. Yet, when I began to think a bit more about it. He is right.
I don’t want to see someone take a pet to play.
Then I sparked new thoughts.
Just because I don’t want to see it doesn’t mean there are people out there that don’t.
It was a back-and-forth tug for around 15 minutes before I heard their suggestion for vloggers.
Start creating content that has a specific niche but do it in blog format. Like me, I do all of my videos from my office. I edit my information and create changes and colors and pop ups… but I’m not moving and I’m never in a different place.
I could see how this could be helpful to my channel.
I’m not a vlogger, but I watch a few of them. I enjoy what they do. Sometimes it’s nice to see a day in the life of another person. Wouldn’t you agree?
But maybe they’re right. Maybe there are so many that have started doing this, that it is no longer appealing to watch. Time to mix things up and give a twist.
If you’re a vlogger — do you agree that some changes should be made. Has vlogging been successful for you?
